Friday, I went drinking, dancing, pool shooting, and bowling with the girlfriend's library cronies.

Saturday, I went to see Mira Nair's The Namesake, which was quite wonderful, especially given my unquenchable thirst for all things Indian. Irfan Khan was great as always. The story impressed me enough that I had to look up who wrote the screenplay and was pleased to see it was Jhumpa Lahiri, who I had booked to read at the bookstore ages ago for her first book. I'll have to dig up my copy of that one.

Afterwards, got home and chopped down some of the branches in the backyard that were driving the girlfriend crazy.

And on Sunday, we swung by my parents' house for the shortest birthday visit ever, trying to ensure that we got out before my family said anything that pissed us off too much. And then went and had crabs with the girlfriend's sister and her husband, which was lovely and very messy.

Also, allergies are making sleeping a bit challenging, so there were a couple very early morning Pokemon sessions.

I know that I'm an unwashed heathen for asking, but did you ever find a way into the after-party for the first night of the film festival?

Glad to know that you had a good time over the weekend. I must say I love the pictures. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. I ended up not trying to crash the party, but only because it was pretty far away and I was feeling too lazy.

Understandable. Keep up the good work. I do enjoy reading about you and your Girl. You sound like the kind of people I'd like of people I'd like to know if I lived out on the coast. Cheers!
